Abstract

A study was carried out to show that diimide generated from p-toluenesulfonhydrazide and tripropylamine is a convenient and very effective reagent for the hydrogenation of PPEs under mild and undemanding conditions. In the initial experiments, this protocol was employed to reduce two different PPE derivatives to the corresponding poly(p-xylene)s.
